Tsugami SS20M-5AX Turn-Mill Multitasking Turning Center

Tsugami Multitasking Turning Center with 5-axis CNC Milling Capabilities

The Tsugami SS20M-5AX Turn/Mill Multitasking Turning Center combines the versatility of a 20mm automatic CNC lathe with the functionality of a 5-axis machining center in a compact foot print. Tsugami began with the functions, precision and speed built into every one of their CNC lathes and enhanced it with a powerful vertical milling spindle mounted to a B-axis that indexes 180° for simultaneous CNC milling operations on main or sub spindle. The powerful B-axis spindle indexes for multi-angle milling or full contour CNC milling.   

The SS20M-5AX Multitasking turning center provides a single set-up solution for complex-shaped and contoured parts that traditionally required multiple, sequential machining processes and frequent handling. 5-axis simultaneous control (C1, Z1, B1, X1. Y1) is possible.   

Eight efficient, powerful motors drive the main, back and tool spindles; back rotary tool; tool magazine;  B-axis; X1, X2; and Z1, Y1, Z2 functions. The SS20M-5AX multitasking machine delivers all of the performance of a high-quality CNC Lathe coupled with the incredible flexibility of a vertical machining center with 24 Tool ATC.    

Key Advantages include:  

  • 30,000 rpm Tool Spindle, Continuous B-axis - provides flexibility of a VMC without fixtures and blank material
  • Continuous B-axis cutting plus 5-axis Simultaneous Control (C1, Z1, B1, X1. Y1) is possible
  • Simultaneous Main (10,000 rpm) and Sub Spindle (12,000) Operations  slash cycle time
  • 24-Tool Automatic Tool Changer with direct ATC capability provides multiple tool options with secure tool changes, independent AC servo motor
  • ATC Located On Front Side of Machine for easy maintenance and tool changes
  • Dedicated Back Tool Post back-side processes may be overlapped with main spindle operations
  • Back Tool Post Operates  even when tool spindle is in change mode, increasing throughput
  • Back Spindle Turning and Milling of the workpiece, allowing the part to be made in one set-up
  • Compact footprint
  • Fanuc 31i-B5 CNC
